Information Technology and Enhancing Care Outcomes: Part IV
We've been in the information technology business since 1994. At that time, information technology and care outcomes were not popular in either the health care industry nor the rehabilitative world. We continue to elevate our standards, improve our measurement processes and analyze aggregated rehabilitative outcome data. We are the standard in measuring rehabilitation outcomes. We support payers in their quality initiatives and payment models that focus on value versus volume.
Collaborating and Connecting for Better Health, Better Value
Alan Muney, MD, MHA will provide examples of how the right connections with the right technology can improve outcomes. One example will be the model developed within Cigna. FOTO paved the way for incentive based payment for outcomes as demonstrated in a 2006 Final Report, titled "Pay-for-Performance for Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy: Medicare Part B Services," to Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
